Plastic bags are not accepted in curbside recycling. In fact, when people do put them in the recycling, they cause a lot of problems for sorting equipment by getting stuck and damaging it.

Instead, recycle plastic bags by bringing them to a drop-off location such as a grocery store. Otherwise, plastic bags should go to the landfill.

Please note, there is no longer an online directory of drop-off sites – the page has a good explanation. In the meantime, we are working on verifying a list of any local stores that accept plastic bags & film…otherwise, please dispose of these materials in the landfill cart.
